ARROW Episode 209 "Three Ghosts" Poll & Discussion (Mid-Season Finale)
Quite a lot happened in this episode. Oliver (Stephen Amell) was saved by Barry Allen (Grant Gustin) but he was not pleased that Felicity (Emily Bett Rickards) and Diggle (David Ramsey) revealed his secret identity. We also saw a ton of super strength SFX on display thanks to Miracle/ Mirakuru. Cyrus Gold (Graham Shiels) once again put a serious hurting on Oliver but we also saw the drugs' effects on Slade Wilson (Manu Bennett). It will be interesting to see how the flashback stories on the island progress as Shado (Celina Jade) was killed by 'Professor' Ivo (Dylan Neal) but Slade says that whoever was responsible would feel his wrath. The obvious conclusion would be that he will find out that Oliver chose to save Sara (Caity Lotz) and so Slade will blame him but it's never a good idea to assume the obvious on Arrow. Then there's also the previous reveals that Ollie thought Sara was dead and that he's defeated someone with Mirakuru before (presumably Slade). There's still lots of foreshadowed island storyline to come in the flashback segments. The last few minutes were an absolute blast, as Arrow set up the birth of a "true" Solomon Grundy, Barry seemingly got his powers, and Arrow got his domino mask. The mask is a nice addition but it's still not difficult to tell that's Oliver underneath it. Maybe a fake beard will be next to complete his superhero costume?
A former friend now appears to be a bitter enemy. A fanboy from Central City learns the secret identity of Starling City's vigilante protector. Plus, a future sidekick became a lot more promising. Continue on to join the discussion on the Arrow mid-season finale. Spoilers

|"After a violent shipwreck, billionaire playboy Oliver Queen was missing and presumed dead for five years before being discovered alive on a remote island in the Pacific. When he returns home to Starling City, his devoted mother Moira, much-beloved sister Thea, and best friend Tommy welcome him home, but they sense Oliver has been changed by his ordeal on the island. While Oliver hides the truth about the man he’s become, he desperately wants to make amends for the actions he took as the boy he was. Most particularly, he seeks reconciliation with his former girlfriend, Laurel Lance. As Oliver reconnects with those closest to him, he secretly creates the persona of Arrow – a vigilante – to right the wrongs of his family, fight the ills of society, and restore Starling City to its former glory. By day, Oliver plays the role of a wealthy, carefree and careless philanderer he used to be – flanked by his devoted chauffeur/bodyguard, John Diggle – while carefully concealing the secret identity he turns to under cover of darkness. However, Laurel’s father, Detective Quentin Lance, is determined to arrest the vigilante operating in his city. Meanwhile, Oliver’s own mother, Moira, knows much more about the deadly shipwreck than she has let on – and is more ruthless than he could ever imagine."|
